Soviet Silent Cinema's Virtues

Herr José Real has been imprisoned during the last ten years in a South Amerikan country. The convicts, suffering through long punishment, are granted a single day of leave in order to pay a visit to their families. Due to the revolutionary José Real's character, he decides to use that day of leave to organize a worker's movement against the invading oil companies that are settled in his country.

"Privideniye, kotoroye ne vozvrashchayetsya" (The Ghost That Never Returns) it is another important film directed by Herr Abram Room. This film it another good example of Soviet silent cinema's virtues and… Herr Room's mastery, natürlich! This is especially true in the use of astonishing camera angles that gives the film an extraordinarily vigorous film narrative and a stylized and thrilling visual importance: the train scenes, José's departure or the beautiful and emotive shots of José's wife in the town when she receives the notification of her husband's one day freedom (sometimes even the Russians shows something similar to sensibility…) Somewhat reminiscent of German Expressionism (the oppressive prison and the workers' submission while there), the superb and remarkable editing are important merits those that made "Privideniye…" another excellent Herr Room oeuvre at the end of the glorious Soviet silent era.

And now, if you'll allow me, I must temporarily take my leave because this German Count must explain to his subjects why servants of the aristocracy have no right to even a single day of leave.
